Number of Homeless In Missoula Goes Up As Weather Gets Hotter

Missoula police say you can expect to see more people loitering around town due to the heat. On Tuesday, patrol sergeants said the hotter weather brings more homeless people and transients to town. They said in general, this time of year they get more calls, and those include complaints of loitering.

"You know, people become more irritable when it's hot, and they're uncomfortable," said Sgt. Chris Odlin of the Missoula Police Department. "We see a lot of times when people are taking advantage of the air conditioning more than a business is comfortable with, loitering kind of things."

Police said they will have the same amount of patrols around town, and will respond to all calls as usual.
